The Charm of Savannah

Dating back to 1733, Savannah, GA, has just about seen it all ranging from its cotton plantation days to the Civil War to it's current stature as the most haunted city in the U.S.  Everywhere you look, Savannah is just one of those places that oozes southern charm through it's historical architecture, endless mouth-watering restaurants, and of course, the people of Savannah themselves.


One of the most interesting and inexpensive ways to explore the charm of Savannah (only $25 per adult, $11 per child) is by riding along on the narrated Historic On/Off trolley tour offered by Old Savannah Tours.  At their own leisure, visitors are able to discover historical points of interest, shopping, and restaurants along the 15-stop route.  Some of the highlights include:

  • 1883 Telfair Museum of Art
  • Cathedral of St. John the Baptist
  • Lucas Theatre
  • Franklin Square & City Market
  • Kehoe House
  • haunted Pirate's House
  • Davenport House
  • Bay Street & Factors Walk
  • haunted Sorrel-Weed House
